Those who have only a few possession, but do not own a home or vehicle, believe they have no reason to create a will. What many clients fail to consider are the personal possessions that may have sentimental value. For instance, who do you want to get your family heirlooms, your wedding ring, your family photos? Something else to consider if you have children is who should be their guardian if you die while they are still minors. The same is true for your pets. If you die without a will, the state will make all of these decisions for you.
